    ABSTRACT: Foreign bodies in the orbit are rare. They can generate more or less serious complications depending on their nature and size. We report an exceptional case of a bulky foreign body in the orbit (the tip of a pen), which did not lead to any complication. A 13-year-old child presented with a right orbital trauma caused by a pen. He consulted 3 months later when a small palpebral swelling appeared. The CT scan showed the presence of a foreign body on the orbital floor. Wound debridement allowed extracting the tip of a pen measuring 3.5cm without any complication. There were no postoperative complications. The originality of this observation is two-fold; the singularity of the foreign body and its total harmlessness in spite of its large size. However, orbital trauma and a secondary orbital syndrome must lead to emergency imaging.

    ABSTRACT: The repair of facial self-mutilation often fails if the reconstruction is not protected. The authors report a case of a lip self-mutilation treated by an orthodontic device: the "lip bumper". A four-year-old patient presented with self-mutilation of the lower lip in a context of multiple malformations. The defect concerned two third of the lower lip. The treatment combined antibiotics, local care, psychiatric management and a lip bumper. The evolution was favorable without need for secondary reconstruction. The lip bumper is a simple orthodontic device. It pushes the lower lip away from the dental arch. It is used to stop the pattern "agitation-mutilation-infection".

    ABSTRACT: OBSERVATION: A 29 year-old-woman presented with a massive painless slow-growing tumor of the right cheek, with a benign aspect on clinical examination. The CT scan with injection, showed a solid-cystic mass, well defined, and partially enhanced. The mass was easily removed with a complete endobuccal excision. The histological examination and immunohistochemical study revealed a paraganglioma. There was no postoperative complication. No recurrence was noted after six months of follow-up. DISCUSSION: The paraganglioma is a rare neuroendocrine tumor and its location in the cheek has never been reported.

    ABSTRACT: IntroductionIsolated-eyelid tuberculosis is exceptional. Its clinical polymorphism explains the delayed diagnosis.ObservationA 36-year-old male nurse, with no specific history, presented with a lower-eyelid nodule. The treatment was not effective and the lesion-exeresis biopsy proved the diagnosis of tuberculosis. Follow-up did not reveal any other tuberculosis focus and the patient's evolution was good under antibacilli treatment.DiscussionEyelid tuberculosis is exceptional. Unlike in our case, it is usually secondary to pulmonary tuberculosis. The eyelid contamination may be hematogenic or secondary to trauma.

    ABSTRACT: Congenital macrostomia, a transverse facial cleft, is a rare deformity of the mouth, which can occur alone or in association with other deformities. We report a case of congenital bilateral macrostomia. We discuss the difficulties of plastic surgery in this pathology. Congenital macrostomia in a one-year-old girl compromised feeding. The patient presented an isolated bilateral transverse facial cleft. Surgery associated a suture of the orbicularis oris muscle and a cutaneous W plasty. At twelve months, follow-up has been uneventful. Congenital macrostomia is most commonly associated with others anomalies. Many procedures are described regarding surgical correction of macrostomia. Reconstruction of the integrity of the oral sphincter associated with W plasty usually gives the best results.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction La macrostomie congénitale (fente faciale transversale) est une malformation faciale rare. Elle peut être isolée ou syndromique. Nous rapportons un cas de macrostomie congénitale bilatérale en insistant sur les difficultés de réparation. Observation Un nourrisson d'un an, de sexe féminin, issu d'un mariage consanguin, nous a été adressé pour des difficultés d'alimentation. L'examen clinique montrait une fente faciale transversale intéressant les deux commissures labiales. Il n'y avait pas d'autres anomalies congénitales. Le traitement a consisté en une commissuroplastie associant une suture du muscle orbiculaire labial à une plastie cutanée en W. Le geste a été bilatéral. Les suites postopératoires ont été simples avec un résultat fonctionnel et cosmétique satisfaisant à 12 mois. Discussion Le diagnostic d'une macrostomie congénitale impose un bilan général à la recherche d'autres anomalies congénitales associées (telles qu'une polydactylie et une malformation de l'oreille externe) et une enquête génétique. Plusieurs techniques opératoires ont été proposées pour corriger cette anomalie. La technique comprenant une suture du muscle orbiculaire labial et une plastie cutanée en W donne des résultats satisfaisants.

    ABSTRACT: Cementoblastoma is a rare benign odontogenic neoplasm. Its cause is unknown. It represents less 6 % of all odontogenic tumors. The aim of our work is to present a rare case of maxillary cementoblastoma involving an included central incisor. A 32-year old man consulted for a left maxillary swelling to projection under nostril. A panoramic radiographic examination revealed an included tooth 21 with a radiopaque lesion around its root. The computed tomography revealed the included tooth 21 with a process around its root. This process is well-defined, high-dense and is surrounded by a radiolucent halo. The treatment should consist of complete removal of the lesion with the tooth 21. Histological examination concluded to the diagnosis of a cementoblastoma. The cementoblastoma occurs most frequently in young persons and predominantly among men. The mandibular premolar and molar are the more frequently reached. The maxillary localization remains rare. This tumor occurs around the roots of the posterior and lower teeth. Radiographically, the lesion is well-defined and attached to the root of the tooth, radiopaque dense and surrounded by a radiolucent halo. The cementoblastoma evolves slowly and has the tendency to blow the cortical. The prognosis is good.

    ABSTRACT: Möbius syndrome is a rare congenital disease characterized by facial and abducens nerve palsy. Children are unable to smile, frown, suck, grimace, blink their eyes, and to move their eyes laterally. The aim of this study was to analyze the diagnosis and treatment of this disease. Maxillofacial examination reveals: facial diplegia, retrognathism, palatine and dental malformations. Möbius syndrome is usually associated with multiple cranial nerve involvement, limb or orofacial malformation, and Poland syndrome. Although the pathogenesis of the syndrome is unclear, a number of mechanisms have been suggested including vascular and genetic hypotheses. Symptomatic treatment is used to manage this syndrome. The diagnosis of Möbius syndrome may be difficult in some patients with atypical signs of facial diplegia and other cranial nerve palsies, it requires a multidisciplinary approach.
